i was just wandering what ppl thought about the weird casing on RAFRAG, mine has just arrived this morning, and i have to say im not too impressed... i don't mind the 'cigarette' cd cases that hellcat records do nor do i have a problem with standard CD cases...but personally im not to keen on this new style...its hard to get the cd and booklet out and wud be easy to damage either, which i really dont wanna do

AFTER heeding all the warnings by our fellow offspring.com members i still fucked it upand ripped it. just like 1cm on the edge.
but the book wouldnt fucking comeout.
tbh i prefer a plastic cd case. the artwork is beautiful.
but plastice cases sits better in my cd rack/ look better/ not as flimsy/ last longer/ matches in with the other albums.

Yes it's better than a jewel case. Looks nicer, makes the artwork stand out better, more friendly for the environment, etc.

nowadays we gotta think about these concers more and more...and dexter himself being a biologist knows it better!!

I haven't gotten it yet, but I'm assuming it's about the same case as Linkin Park's Meteora album. If it is, then I probably won't even notice the difference seeing as I didn't even notice it on Meteora until this thread. =P

Mushroom
06-16-2008, 10:13 AM
It's an awesome design, I just wish I didn't think I was going to scratch the disk every time I get it out. Completely unexpected, but overall cool.

I keep thinking "This is so meant to be a LP"

The paper is making the case a bit optically smaller imho, but it's not that big deal. Not something that disturbs my existence that much.

Rutegard

yeah the problem is that here we discuss pretty much anything...from the CD color to the it's weight lol

I like the casing. I had no problem getting the CD out, but yes the booklet is a little harder to get out. I also don't like how thin it is cause I can't see it when it's stacked in with my CDs. But otherwise, I really like the case and the artwork. Best artwork since Americana. :)

I really enjoy the case. The artwork is fantastic. I had no problem with removing the CD and booklet.

Johnny Birdbrook
06-17-2008, 07:19 PM
well, i feel kinda fooled, since the cd was 17 (about 20 dollars)
and now i got a piece of paper in my hand, which feels like a single, but not like an album..

i love the ones of paper rancid does, i even prefer them to normal cases, since i don't that plastic shit either.

But the new offspring case is just kind of a joke to me. feels so cheap.

IamSam
06-17-2008, 07:25 PM
feels so cheap.

And biodegradable! :D

Seriously though, I don't keep cases because I have a seperate case for my car. I wouldn't keep the case...until now. Somehow I'm going to hang it up with the interior artwork showing.

The only other cd with this kind of casing I have is that Ozzfest '06 album they give for free. The answer would be no.

06-17-2008, 10:23 PM
Not at all. They should stick with the classic one.

T_immortal
06-17-2008, 10:31 PM
It stands out from the rest of my Offspring CD's, I rather like it, I think i would have preferred one of those cases that are paper on the outside but still have plastic on the inside for the cd, a la Stadium Arcadium or others (I'm sure you guys know what kind i mean). But it's still very nice and the artwork stands out a lot more this way, doesnt get lost behind the cd. That being said the art and booklet for Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace is some of the best I've ever seen :)

would have preferred the old kind of casing but still love it it looks cool and i loved the booklet impressive i think it looks sweet:p

06-18-2008, 06:15 AM
I personally don't care how it's set up. I think it's better in a way actually, more room for Artwork than a normal CD case. But I've bought tons of CD's before that have the same setup, so it's nothing new to me. As long as it's new Offspring who should really care about the case.

yea the casing, is really easily damaged.. so thats a real down side :( i guess i will just have to take very very good care of it.

Note to self: read the damn poll question before replying.

I thought this was "do you like the new album?", which I really really do.

The casing. Hmm. Well as somebody whose CD tower is overflowing and have piles of CD's taking up space all over the place, I enjoy the slim case. The CD is a bit difficult to get out but otherwise it's cool.

I have no problem with the album's casing, in fact I actually seem to prefer these now to the classic "jewel" case.

06-20-2008, 07:28 PM
the artwork is awesome but the casing could be better. i slightly ripped it the second day of owning it.although it was my fault for pressing the top and bottom on the cd side to get the cd out.(did that make sense, i couldnt figure out how to word it)

Thomas
06-29-2008, 08:53 PM
Okay, I had no problem with the new album casing whatsoever until just now. The cd is scratched to hell and now Lets Hear it for Rock Bottom doesn't work AT ALL.

I'm pretty angry because it's skipping the exact same way in both my boombox and in my computer.

Has anyone else had this problem yet? And can someone send me the song i'm missing so I can just make a burned copy of the whole album myself?

Ryder1234
06-29-2008, 09:18 PM
i dont get how you can rip the casing, just put pressure on the tops of the case so it bends open a bit to get the stuff out. i do that and i havent ripped it

Seriously, why do all of ya have this damn problem getting the CD out?? The album casing isn't THAT hard.

If you just do it in a smart way, it works really fine. Look here: if you just press a little bit at the top and the bottom at the same time while holding the casing down, the CD will slide perfectly right out. You don't need to get your big fingers inside the whole damn opening and pull it out and destroy the case.

Exactly. Hold the casing and kinda squish your thumb and your index finger together and voila... the CD comes out.

And here are a couple visual pics. for all your confused people... haha.
